    Compak K6

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    What are the advantages of a K6 over a K3 for the home user?
    Is it just build quality and speed? Or is there a difference in the cup?

    Hi htb,

    More speed than anything IMHO...

    Where you will see a difference is with the big conicals- e.g K10

    I own a K3 but cant say Ive used a K6. I suspect it would take a pretty sophisticated palate to detect any differences in the cup.

    From the specification I assume they have the same motor while the K6 has lager burrs (64 v 58mm) so may be a little faster. Considering they are similarly priced, I doubt thered be any major dfferences in the build quality. One of our sponsors would be better placed to comment on this.

    Keep in mind that the K3 is quite a large unit, it looks big (but not out of place) next to my Giotto. The K6 is 14cm taller (and bigger in other dimensions too) so could look out of place on a kitchen bench.

    Unless you needed to make 20+ coffees pretty quickly, you wouldnt want all that extra space a K6 takes up.

    In my testing area, I have a K3T and a K6 next to a high-group commercial machine - just look at the difference.



    As CJ notes above, the K3 is not a small unit.
